I'm using a mix of spark and mx components. Really, I'd love to use only spark, but I need dateField components too, and these are only spark. The issue I'm having is to have a common look amongst the various components and this is not quite the case when it comes to highlighting text in a textInput (or DateField, or NumericStepper, or ComboBox, etc). Spark components default to black fonts and blueish highlight. mx default to black on white for non-selected and white on black for selected.
I looked around for hours and sort of gave up on making mx look like spark, although I like the spark look much better (although would love to hear if anything new has come up with flex 4 for this). I assumed that at least making spark look like mx would be easy. But is it?
I know how to change the color for the highlight (i.e. the background part) using focusedTextSelectionColor. What I can't find is the same for the fonts, i.e. something like focusedSelectedFontColor. But I'm sure it exists. It must, right?
anyway, would love any pointers you can spare.
Awesome - you saved my life. Works like a charm!
BTW, had looked through your mockup - looks great but I don't think I'm good enough to turn into something that looks quite as good as the real deal - can't wait to see all spark components, so far all the ones I've used have been great.
